Join us for our December 2022 Storytelling Session
Time: December 13, 2022, 11:00 am CST (1 - 1.5 hours)
Technical skills-focused courses can struggle to connect with communities in an asset-based, rather than a deficit-based, way. There is often an impulse to do for, instead of with or to write off the possibility of community engagement due to time limitations. However, this need not be so! Presenter Dr. Samantha Close shares examples drawn from her years of teaching Introduction to Digital Media Skills, a project-based community service learning course at DePaul University. Chiarra Lohr brings the community partner side of the equation, speaking from her experiences working with Close's course.

This course is a global space for sharing and learning about practices that put communities and their strengths at the center of any project or initiative. These initiatives could be big or small in any sector of your work or life. We also explore how institutions can respond to communities through more equitable and authentic partnerships. We will offer a “time-out” for you to question the starting point and core beliefs underlying your work and to re-evaluate the role of institutions in stimulating and supporting genuine asset-based and citizen-led development (ABCD). Your facilitators have extensive experience working alongside local, Indigenous, and international communities and are excited to highlight each course participant’s expertise and perspectives in our virtual classroom.
